The Write House is revolutionizing the way lawyers write

Transforming one’s formal or legal writing from the conventional style of using archaisms, legalese, and verbosity to plain English is not an easy shift. It is a shift that requires putting clients’ or community’s satisfaction above pleasing oneself. At last week’s Learned Writing: Sense & Nonsense, The Write House showed participants from various parts of the country how to transform their writing.

After introducing participants to its plain English movement on the opening day of the training Wednesday 26 October 2016, The Write House taught participants how to write to join the top 1% of the global legal profession.

Chinua Asuzu, Dean of The Write House, taught participants language skills and techniques to improve their documents. Mr Asuzu also showed participants how they can begin sentences with ‘and’, ‘because’ and ‘but’ for effects. Participants also learnt how to use bullets, italics, numbers, enumeration, tabulations, etc. to enhance clarity and readability. Mr Asuzu emphasized the importance of being clear, comprehensible, concise, cogent, and complete– what Mr Asuzu described as the 5 Cs of legal writing.
